Bug Fix

Missing State Blocked User from Submitting Details


If a company is headquartered in Washington, DC, users could not activate their account since DC (District of Columbia) was not an option in the State field.


The State field picklist has been updated from the API side, so the list of states will be dynamically generated. This will allow states to be added or removed in the future.

The following updates were also made to the component.

  • If a state list is available for a country, the user will see the drop-down list.
  • If a state list is unavailable, the user will see a free-form text field where they can manually enter the state’s name.
